Brief Answer:
Symptoms could also be due to seizures

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. These symptoms could be related to anxiety/panic.

In addition, these symptoms could also be due to complex partial seizures, arising from the temporal lobe.
Long-term video EEG would be helpful in confirming the diagnosis.

After confirming the diagnosis, appropriate medications can be used to control your symptoms.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
